A church in Washington State is debating whether or not to remove a swastika image put on the floor of its sanctuary before the Second World War.
Longview Community Church's sanctuary was constructed during the 1920s, before the swastika garnered its malevolent reputation as a symbol of Nazism.
The San Francisco Gate reported Sunday that the congregation of Longview Community is not of one mind about what to do, if anything, about the imagery. more >>
In an effort to increase parental involvement in schools, the Mississippi House has passed a bill that would allow teachers in low-performing school districts to grade parental involvement on report cards.
Known as the Parent Involvement and Accountability Act, it would also require teachers to assign students with daily homework, instruction in cursive writing as well as implement a professional dress code for teachers working in low-performing schools, according to The Hechinger Report.
The bill, which was proposed by Rep. Gregory Holloway, Sr., D-Hazlehurst, would require teachers to "grade" parents in districts that have been rated a C or lower by the state as "unsatisfactory," "needs improvement" or "satisfactory." more >>

Organized by the LGBT group Campus Pride, more than 80 organizations sent a letter to the NAACP last week calling for it to "divest from all religious based campuses" that asked for the waivers, which they claim are "discriminatory." more >>
Pope Francis announced this week that a Palestinian teacher has been named the recipient of the $1 million Global Teacher Award.
The pontiff made the announcement via video on Sunday, saying Hanan al-Hroub, a school teacher in the city of al-Bireh, located on the West Bank, would be receiving the prize for her dedication to teaching refugee children.
"Who is our nation's capital named after?" seems like an easy question for any fifth grader to answer correctly.
But a man named Mark Dice went out to the streets of San Diego and asked this question in numerous man-on-the-street interviews, asking that very question. His results can be seen here, and they are shocking.
Many of the adults he spoke to in these Jay Leno-style interviews had no clue. One lady even offered up Lincoln as the answer. He asked, "Lincoln, DC?" She then realized her error and said, "Washington, DC." more >>
In part one I argued Christians parents should stop sending their kids to public schools because those schools teach an alternate religion.
When I argue this case, though, I usually get a fair amount of push-back and hear some common defenses for sending kids to public school. But do these arguments actually hold up to scrutiny?
